In this short piece I imagined a female dancer who dances energetically, with a pair of castanets in her hands. Yet, I had no intentions to create flamenco music, but rather to twist fragments of it. The piece is built in three sections: fast, slow, fast. In the slow sections, I had in mind the sound and character of the Ud – the lute’s Mediterranean cousin. Six for a Dance is dedicated to Aaron Larget-Caplan.
